Right wing Blair Riley picked up his first tally of the season at 7:42 of the second period to push the advantage to 3-0 after two.

Deslauriers scored early in the third to give the Monarchs some life, but St. John’s left wing Kael Mouillierat scored at the midway point of the final period to re-establish the three-goal lead. O’Dell’s goal five minutes later put the result beyind doubt.
